I was thinking of trying out GPU+SMP folding, but was told that SMP is made for machines that are dedicated to folding because they have quicker deadlines. So I am trying out a GPU+2UniCPU folds.

I was thinking about it, but I'm not sure how long I would fold. So I just made my own team because it would be easier for me to see how many I have folded between my 3 systems.

"maxing" is completely pendant on your resolution. And GPU, of course. But they go hand in hand.

I meant 1920x1080, max AA and all settings turned up all the way. In my opinion you cannot max out a game unless your minimum fps is above 30 (i get occasional drops to 15ish).

When I try to max out World of Warcraft, mine can drop to 9fps.

WoW needs lots of VRAM, not a terribly powerful GPU.

Below 60 FPS does not make a happy Cabbs.

Haha, same. I can tolerate the occasional drop, as long as it stays above 40. How people play games in the 15 fps range, I do not know. Last time I tried that, I lasted maybe 20 minutes before I felt a migraine coming on.

Also, on the subject of maxing games, I say it doesn't count as truly maxing unless your resolution is at least 1920x1200.


Can someone recommend me a TV show to watch? I just watched like 50 episodes of NCIS from my HTPC, and now I'm out of shows.
